Child Custody And Visitation

Ending a marriage or partnership is hard. And it becomes even harder when children are involved. Custody battles over children can be one of the worst types of litigation. Court hearings can be very emotional and highly stressful. Indeed, these types of hearings, where both legal and physical custody of a child are determined, are usually the most difficult period in a family law case.

Determining custody is complicated by the fact that there are two types of custody: legal and physical. Legal custody establishes which parent retains the right to make the educational, medical and religious decisions of the child. Physical custody is the time the child literally resides with a parent. Although sole custody can be granted when it is in the best interest of a child, custody decisions start out favoring some form of joint custody and a detailed visitation plan.
